We have now owned our home for a year and we have made loads of very significant updates. We still have loads of updates to make and have been looking at trends for 2020.
We currently have a sofa and a chair which doesn’t work for our lounge at the moment ! It would be great look at some corner sofas to create some more space and also have more room to sit when we have visitors etc. I love the 2020 trend of velour or velvet sofas too.
We like the thought of still having a one seater chair as that is where I like to sit in the mornings currently. We also have a footstool which takes up space , it would be good to also look at some recliner sofas as these could save some space with the footstool too.
I love the neutral look we have in the lounge at the moment but still want it to be cosy. I like the idea of keeping the walls a neutral colour but adding subtle accessories along the way. At the moment we have plain magnolia walls with wooden flooring so this gives us loads of flexibility with things that we add in to the lounge. I love the navy blue colour for the lounge over the fire place which is really bang on trend now for 2020.
I love the contemporary floor lamps and the vintage style designs. And for the ceiling lamps I love the low hanging bistro style fittings. I think they will really brighten up the lounge especially in the colder months as it can be a bit darker.
I’m also on the look out for the perfect black and white prints with a splash of colour added to them. We need to find some that will bring out our personality as a family. I am keen on the tropical and designs and Frankie loves Flamingos so we are on the lookout for something with this theme that catches our eye.
The rug and scatter cushions are going to be the feature pieces in the lounge so something in bright colours would really work well and stand out in the neutral lounge.
I love the geometric designs too as they make a fab feature piece. I’m really excited to see what the future brings with the development of the lounge and can’t wait to see the finished product.
We also need to update our windows in 2020 as they are very outdated and not in the best condition, whilst browsing I have seen many cheap windows online so I’m looking forward to this. I would also love to change the doors too, I love the idea of darker colours rather than the white PVC which I find really dated now.
Another plan is to add a Watercolour Painting to our walls. More and more collections are becoming digitised, so more and more prints are slowly becoming available, meaning there’s bound to be a piece out there that will suit anybody’s home.
So as you can see we have so many plans and things we want to update to be in line with 2020 trends , it will tale time but we will get there and our forever home will be our own.
